I focus my practice on preparing and prosecuting patent applications in the biomedical and biotechnology fields.
Representative areas of technical experience include:
I believe that the “CRISPR Patent War” (University of California v. Broad Institute, Inc.) shines a spotlight on the significance of intellectual property protection and rapid, high quality patent prosecution for the life sciences. I will adapt our services to protect our clients as the patent landscape continues to shift.
